Ajay Devgn’s film ‘Drishyam 2’ seems to be getting stuck in legal trouble. Kumar Mangat was going to make the second part of the film with Panorama Studios. But the producer of the first part of this film, Viacom 18 Motion Pictures, in its official statement has raised objection to the production of the film by Kumar Mangat. In the first part of the film, Ajay Devgan, Tabu and Ishita Dutta were in the lead role.
Now Viacom 18 Motion Pictures says that they also have the rights to this. Malayalam superstar Mohanlal will be seen in ‘Drishyam 2’ and media reports said that Ajay Devgn and Tabu are going to present their character in a new way. The first part of this film was released in 2015 and it was produced by the late director Nishikant Kamat. During that time, the film was produced by Wacom 18 along with Panorama Studios and Kumar Mangat.
The E-Times report quoted sources as saying, “Viacom18 Motion Pictures has told Mangat that they cannot be separated from this film. He also said that he cannot make Vishayam 2 with himself or anyone else. Despite this, Mangat started working on the project regardless. Angered by this, Viacom 18 has filed a court case against him. The first hearing in this case is going to be held soon. “
Here Mangat says that the film has now been officially announced and he is co-producing it with Panorama Studios. However, Mangat has kept his silence on partnering with Viacom18.
